    part of me wonders if he bit me and I didn’t notice.
    1. The dog was friendly and didn’t seem sick (cold maybe but not sick)
    2. Other people were interacting with the dog without issues.
    3. The dog had some kind of collar on (no rabies tag that I could see though) meaning he had an owner and was likely vaccinated or at the very least unlikely to contract rabies in the first place.

    Re: Another post about the dreaded “ninja bat”

    Ok good news: I’m out of the ninja bat phase for the time being.

    Bad news m: it’s been replaced by invisible puppy bite fear after I petted an adorable little puppy (with his masters permission) and she put her mouth on my arm after licking me.(erm the dog not her master) I don’t think it broke the skin and the dog was just being a little hyperactive according to her owner.

    Still I feel a small burning in the lower part of my arm now so my anxiety is already picking out my coffin and asking if it can have my CDs. A bit of reassurance would help I also plan to ask the owner about the dog next week when they come back. I’m also seeing my GP next month so maybe they will get me in touch with therapy.

    Thanks in advance for any help but no YOU can’t have my cds either. 🙂

    I love this. Consider it stolen.

    I can't help but think of Inspector Clouseau here..

    Inspector Clouseau: Does your dog bite?

    Hotelier: No.

    Clouseau bends down to pet the dog and the dog bites him.

    Clouseau: I thought you said it didn't bite!

    Hotelier: That's not my dog.



    I have OCD. It's so frustrating when you can't get your brain to accept what your eyes can see, right?

    Out of interest, what will you say to the owner? I would actually tread carefully here. People can get a bit arsey?


    Thanks in advance for any help but no YOU can’t have my cds either. 
    I'll no doubt come across them as a job-lot on Ebay.

    Re: Another post about the dreaded “ninja bat”

    I went through something similar last year. My neighbors new little dog was all excited to see me and I pet her a lot and she was so excited and jumping around that she somehow scraped one of her tiny sharp teeth across my finger. It didn't hurt or even break the skin but there was a slight red line like a barely there scrape. I was losing it and wanted to go and ask her if her dog had been vaccinated for rabies but ended up deciding that I'd rather sit with my fear than go and look like a total paranoid weirdo to my neighbor lol. I'm so socially awkward, I couldn't bring myself to do that. Fast forward about 7 months and both me and the dog are still here. I know how bad OCD sucks (especially when it focuses on insanely rare and deadly illnesses) but you're going to be fine. If the dogs owner is responsible, the puppy will have been vaccinated. Even if the dog isn't vaccinated, the probability of it having rabies is virtually zero. You're okay, I promise.

    Thankfully the dog came back the next week and was still its adorable self. Sadly when I was patrolling the trailer yard at work (think of the worst maintained road you’d ever and add 30-50 Diesel engines all blaring at once while walk up and down each one with a tablet computer) I felt something bump my neck, I’m not really in an ocd state about it yet but I know the ninja bat fear is coming.

    Every time I think I’m out they pull me back in…

    I’ll get over it again but damn it’s a pain in the ass. Also trailer yards suck and Diesel engines suck even more, though now that I think about it they likely would keep the bats away even the ninja variety

    Addendum: I hate my job because both shifts I work make seeing anyone outside the ER impossible and I don’t get sick leave so I basically have to sit and suffer because going to the ER over this would be stupid and expensive…
